Our Beginnings

Founded in 1977, our society is dedicated to promoting awareness of family history and helping people in their genealogical research. The society is a non-profit organization with 501 3c status. We rely on the work of volunteers and individual donations to help pay expenses, and add to the genealogical collections of our area.

This is a growing site as time and volunteers permit. We are a small group, but want to provide as many on-line records as possible, to assist your Lyon County, Kansas research efforts. Check back often as we will be adding more information from time to time.

The Flint Hills Genealogical Society is not responsible for possible mistakes that might appear on any of the following pages on our site. All indices and extractions were done by humans, and therefore are open to errors, or misreading of handwriting. There may have been errors in the official recording of the information, and those are then passed on here. There may have also been errors in transferring the information to this site, and while all were proofread many times, errors may still exist. Every effort has been made to make them as correct as possible, in order to help any researcher visiting this site to find information on their family.

Remember when in doubt, always contact the original source of information.
